Our alarms went off at 7am this morning to kick off a nonstop Saturday. First up was a heavy (for me) weight lifting session at the gym. We’re members of both a regular gym and a CrossFit gym. I very rarely get to the regular gym since my focus is currently on CrossFit and running (I don’t do treadmills *shudder*) for my fall marathon. Today was technically a rest day but since my arms weren’t abused this week at CrossFit the husband and I decided to try a weight lifting session on our own. We started off together doing some bench-pressing (for spotting purposes) then each did our own (similar) thing at our own pace and weights. What I did:

  • 20 push-ups to warm up
  • Benchpress: 10 reps @ 65lbs, 10 reps @ 75lbs, 10 reps @ 80lbs

  • 50 pull-ups

  • 20 dips
  • Dumbell curls: 15 reps @ 20lbs

  • Tricep machine (not sure what it was called): 15 reps @ 22.5 (lbs?), 10 reps @ 27.5, 5 reps @ 30
  • Low Row: 15 reps @ 70lbs, 10 reps @ 80lbs, 5 reps @100 lbs
  • Lat Pull Down: 15 reps @ 70lbs, 5 reps @ 85lbs
  • 20 Body Rows with the TRX

  • Dumbell curls: 10 reps @ 15lbs
Today was grocery shopping day so we are out of protein at home (the horror!). We stopped at a gas station and picked up some Muscle Milk. At $4 and 230 calories a pop, these are definitely an indulgence! 

After pumping some iron we briefly stopped for doggie treats then headed home to shower. We rushed off to meet a bunch of friends for brunch at Country Pancake House and per the usual, the food did not disappoint.

Tex Mex Omelet with ‘Addictive Delight’ pancakes (chocolate and peanut butter chips). I promise I only ate half, which was probably 4x a normal serving!

Once we had sufficiently gorged ourselves we headed down to the Sprint store to upgrade our phones! We both ended up with the HTC EVO 4G, mine is white and husband’s is black. This is the husband’s first smart phone and while he is currently frustrated with the phone, I know he’ll appreciate joining in on the technology era! 😉

We ran a few more errands and now we’re home for the night.  With a long run (15 miles) scheduled for the early morning we plan to stay in and watch our latest NetFlix movie, Unstoppable. Let’s hope it’s better than the last movie we got, Battle of Los Angeles. Apparently Battle of Los Angeles is different from Battle: Los Angeles that was released on DVD at the same time. The difference? Battle of Las Angeles is a super low budget copy cat with horrible acting and special effects that a middle school with a computer could have created. It was so awful we only got through the first 5 minutes. Lesson learned: always double check what your’e adding to your queue!
